Google Summer of Code -- now!

Hello folks, I know that some of you are just beginning to mentor your
Season of KDE students. However, Google has made the prep phase for GSoC
even earlier this year, so it is time to start NOW.

Mirror of Qt being discontinued

Hi all,

As part of a recent review of our systems it has been determined that
the Qt mirror we were hosting was not being used significantly.

SoK 2018 Project - 'New Season of KDE Website'

Hello everyone,
I'm Mayank Gupta, I successfully completed a project under CCExtractor
organisation in Google Summer of Code 2017, I am interested in developing
"New Season of KDE webste" under Season of KDE 2018. From @baloneyGeek I
got to know KDE Identity uses standard LDAP userdb and also that I'd need
to setup dummy server for the same to test KDE identity integration for
developed website.

So about the implementation of idea 'New SoK website', when integrating KDE
Identity (which uses LDAP db), do the 'Org Admins' belong to different
`OrganisationalUnit` on the server?

Qt 5.9 and font rendering

Hi,

Did anyone notice any changes in font rendering quality after upgrading to Qt 5.9x?

I did, certain fonts (among which Novarese BQ) looked significantly "watered down", on systems that have Freetype 2.6.5 as well as one with Freetype 2.7.1 . Upon verification with Qt,

which probably explains what I'm seeing. I may however also be looking at an interaction with the Freetype Infinality and accompanying FontConfig patches.

Reviving KAudioCreator

Hello all,

I happen to be one of those poor souls who still rip CDs from time to time.
I'm using Dolphin for that right now, but I miss the convenience of using
KAudioCreator a while back.

It looks like it's not released at all anymore. After a quick glance at the
repository, it seems to be in a somewhat good shape (at least it builds and
starts, I didn't push further yet).

Then, I'd like to revive it and have it part of KDE Applications. Anyone with
an objection about that?

baloo_file_extractor is slowing me down.

Hi,

I am running KDE Neon user edition. Recently I have noticed that my laptop
has been slow and sluggish. I have found baloo_file_extractor to be the
culprit. After a while is consumes 4 GB or RAM and between 50 and 100% of
my CPU. As soon as I kill the process my laptop speeds up again. I'm not
sure exactly when this started but it has been during the last couple of
months. I have noticed I have a very large ~/.xsession-errors file with a
lot of baloo references in it.

KDE (or X?) clipboard goes stupid

[kf5 5.38, plasma-workspace-5.10.5, Fedora 25]

My KDE/X clipboard goes astray sometimes. I Copy URL to clipboard from KMail,
for example, and when I paste I get something from a day ago pasted.

Is there any way to reset that clipboard without restarting X or KDE? I'm not
talking about Klipper, but the default clipboard.

DragonPlayer

Hello all,
Sad to say, DragonPlayer seems dead-ish. It hasn't gotten any code
changes since January of this year. Kubuntu has stopped shipping it by
default, replacing it with VLC. Bugzilla tickets continue to pile up.

What's the way forward here? Should we look for a new maintainer or
admit defeat and just recommend VLC or MPV or something else?

KWin render backend and window content

Hi,

Does anyone on this list know answers to the following?

The "tearing prevention" option in KWin's Compositor setting has a large effect on video playback on my system. The only way I seem to be able to avoid tears and partial screen updates are

OpenGL + fullscreen repaints tearing prevention
XRender (+ Automatic tearing prevention)

I presume that "fullscreen repaints" corresponds to the good approach where you update an offscreen framebuffer and then swap that with the onscreen buffer just before the screen starts to repaint.

alternative.

Plasma-Mycroft is in kdereview

Hi all,

This is a request email for the review process of the mycroft plasmoid, the plasma-mycroft project has been moved to kdereview

The repository url: <a href="https://cgit.kde.org/plasma-mycroft.git/" title="https://cgit.kde.org/plasma-mycroft.git/">https://cgit.kde.org/plasma-mycroft.git/</a>

Mycroft plasmoid is a desktop frontend that interacts with the Mycroft Core. It is an open source community committed technology that ties natural language processing, text-to-speech, speech-to-text, and powerful APIs together to create a powerful experience allowing users to manipulate their devices through voice control.

KDEconnect on 2 different networks: totally impossible?

Hello,

I've been trying to get KDEconnect to work across a router and it
appears to be impossible. My internal network, where the linux KDE
is, is at 192.168.x.0, the android phone with KDEconnect is at
192.168.y.0. Traceroute reaches the phone so it's not a routing
problem. I have found this:

and it says (in the Configuring KDE Connect section):

Note: pairing WILL NOT WORK if your Android device isn’t on the same
network as your PC.

Dolphin: how to dereference soft links?

Hi there,

When using drag&drop to copy a softlink to another directory, a new link to
the original file is created. This is not always a useful behaviour, especially
when the target directory is for example an usb stick and the file should be
transferred to another computer who cannot dereference that list.

I did not find a way to do that in dolphin, so I had to do that in a terminal
via cp.

Is there a way to do that in dolphin?

Alex

Question about Kwallet

krename in kdereview

Hello,

thanks to the KDE Sysadmins krename was moved to kdereview today.

It's a batch renamer started outside of KDE and its infrastructure but
it was kind of abandoned and I got the ok the from the original author
to move it to git.kde.org.

The code can be found at kde:krename.

The intended target should be
extragear-or-whatever-that-thing-missing-a-proper-name-is/utils

Considering KDELibs4 reached the end of its life-cycle, I'd like to
release a beta version soon after krename passes review.

Questions? Comments?

Evolving KDE – The goals are set!

Hey everyone :)

Since Akademy in Almería we have been going through the process of
defining goals for KDE for the next 3 to 4 years. Different ideas were
proposed and refined. 10 of them made it into the community-wide vote
to select 3 of them. Today I am proud to announce the result based on
the 684 submitted votes.

The 3 goals KDE will be focusing on over the next 3 to 4 years are:
* Top-notch usability and productivity for basic software: We want our
users to love our software and enable them to do their day-to-day work
hassle-free.

Akregator Font Rendering Issue

Hello all,

I've been encountering a font rendering issue with Akregator (I'm running
Kubuntu 17) causing text within the content tab of the application to
render improperly. As you can see in my linked screenshot, the text in most
of the program renders properly, whereas that of the content block has some
issues.

Chrome/ium and KWallet

Hi,

Here's something I've been annoyed by for a long time, I thought I'd check here if I'm right and maybe not alone in this:

Google Chrome has long had KWallet integration and has had a habit for a few year now to present the KWallet unlock dialog as soon as you load a page which has something that looks like an authentification feature.

Symmy in kde-review

Hi,
symmy has been moved to kde-review for the usual review process.

It's a tiny frontend for the symmetric encryption functionality of GPG. It
doesn't handle signing or public/private keys, as we already have kgpg or
kleopatra for that.

Symmy can be useful if you have to send some sensitive file to someone, of
if you want to store it on some proprietary cloud service.

It comes with a CLI application and plugins for GUI integration with
Dolphin/Plasma.

I'd like to move it to either extragear-utils or kde-utils, if everything
looks good.

Thanks,
Elvis

releaseme new requirement: non-conflicting files on case-insensitive FS/OS

Guten Abend Everyone!

To aid with use of our tarballs on Windows and case-insensitive file
systems, releaseme now makes sure [1] that the tarballs it generates
are safe to use in such contexts.

As this is a major problem for pretty much every source tarball as it
prevents people from doing Windows builds and/or unpack on exfat/fat32
this is considered a fatal flaw in the tarball.

pgp passphrase and kwallet?

Hi,

I just almost had to replace a little-used pgp certificate because I couldn't remember the passphrase. Fortunately I had it stored in a keychain on my Mac.

I've looked but cannot seem to find an equivalent for KDE allowing to store certificate passphrases in a wallet. It's not in Kleopatra in any case.

Thanks,
René

What controls the default ordering of which application handles an opened file?

Howdy all,
I'm working on adding Krita file support to Gwenview
(<a href="https://phabricator.kde.org/D8751" title="https://phabricator.kde.org/D8751">https://phabricator.kde.org/D8751</a>) and my patch works, but has the side
effect of causing Krita files to prefer being opened in Gwenview rather
than Krita itself. Krita should take preference when it's installed, but
how is the default application ordering determined? Where should this
change be made?

Thanks everyone,
Nate Graham

How is symbol visibility set in KF5 and KDE?

Hi all,

I just realised that the Python binding effort is not setting the default
visibility for symbols using the -fvisibility=xxx option when processing
the header files [1]. Of course I can see the export macros set by the
likes of attica_exports.h, but I don't see where the compiler default is
set. Can somebody kindly point that out?

Thanks, Shaheed

[1] I'm also a bit mystified by the fact that I am deliberately querying
CMake for the COMPILE_FLAGS to use, but I have not seen -fvisibility
anywhere...

Konsole doesn't search $XDG_CONFIG_DIRS for konsolerc

Konsole successfully searches $XDG_DATA_HOME (~/.local/) then
$XDG_DATA_DIRS (~/usr/share/my-distro-package/) for its konsole/ data
directory, finding my `Shell.profile`, which is for my distro's users
(Whonix).

The problem is `.konsolerc`. Konsole searches $XDG_CONFIG_HOME (~/.config/)
for .konsolerc. If it doesn't find it there (which it won't upon first
use), it *should* then search $XDG_CONFIG_DIRS. However, it does not.
Instead it creates a default `.konsolerc` in $XDG_CONFIG_HOME. I even did
`chmod -rw .konsolerc`.

Do not enforce copy and paste restrictions in Okular

Hello,

KDE is under no legal obligation to distribute source code or software
that enforces PDF's copy&paste restriction flags. In fact, not even
Google Drive's Android PDF viewer enforces this. The Okular source
code calls this, 'DRM'. Put this way, the current situation appears
even more dubious. It's a shame to watch KDE follow this path, and I'm
perplexed to see this 'DRM' logic embedded inside free software.

The attached patch removes these needless restrictions. It works perfectly.

Thanks,
Jason

Hi all,

As some of you will know, we're currently unable to build our Fedora

Making Purpose part of KF5

Hi,
I would like to include Purpose [1] into the frameworks umbrella.
It's been around for a while now, used by few applications and
reasonably stable.

Any thoughts?

Out-of-screen painting for QuickView ?

Hello everyone,

an encyclopedic question, a QQuickView when is out of screen is not painted
at all. This creates some rare issues with Latte because of its animations
and tasks updates. You can read at:
<a href="https://github.com/psifidotos/Latte-Dock/issues/753" title="https://github.com/psifidotos/Latte-Dock/issues/753">https://github.com/psifidotos/Latte-Dock/issues/753</a>

Do you know any way to tell Qt to paint QQuickView objects even when they
are out-of-screen?

regards,

KGet frameworks branch

Hi all!

I spent some time during the last weeks on the KF5 port of kget to fix
problems I noticed, e.g.

Latte : make_unique for gcc <=4.8

Hello everyone,

during the review phase in Latte we removed the following code in case it
would conflict in some cases:

#if __GLIBCXX__ <= 20150623
namespace std {
template<class T, class... Args>
unique_ptr<T> make_unique(Args &&... args)
{
return std::unique_ptr<T>(new T(std::forward<Args>(args)...));
}
}
#endif

this was needed for gcc versions that even though they are C++14 compatible
they dont offer make_unique function. By removing that code we broke
compatibility with openSUSE Leap that uses gcc 4.8.5 ...

liquidshell in kdereview

Hi all,

I'd like to announce an application I've implemented over the last few weeks - liquidshell

It does not use QtQuick but instead relies on QtWidgets,
therefore no hardware graphics acceleration is needed.

Main Features:
- Wallpaper per virtual desktop
- No animations, no CPU hogging, low Memory footprint
- Instant startup
- No use of activities (I never used nor needed them)
- QtWidgets based, therefore follows widget style from systemsettings
- Icons are used from your globally defined icon theme from systemsettings
- Colors are used from
